Sony has a new PlayStation Portable. Budget priced at €99 (and currently only for Europe), the PSP E-1000 does what every other PSP does—it just doesn't have built-in Wi-Fi. And it's matte! See?

The PSP E-1000 is on display at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's big, beach-themed booth, a handheld almost completely free of greasy fingerprints. That may be the most exciting thing about Sony's latest iteration of the six-year-old platform. It's lighter (but slightly larger), shuffles a few hardware features around and has traded its below-screen buttons for a single, touch-sensitive strip.

The PSP, in my opinion, is the worst handheld (and console) ever made. I bought one on release day, and it was a massive mistake. I'd say I bought like 3(?) games altogether for it. It hurts your hands when you play it, the buttons are in stupid places, the battery is crap. The only thing it was good for was porn. I haven't even turned it on in about 3 years. Come to think of it, it's probably lost, and I don't even care.

Don't buy this wi-fi-less version.

Don't buy any version.

Don't buy a Vita.

Buy a 3DS, OR

buy a super cheap DS Lite.
